Everest temp reporting!!??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Running Prime95 and Everest for the first time today. Prime has been running for about 1/2 hour and CPU temp has gone up from 32C to 48C. But there four other cpu temps there (the four cores I assume). teo of them are as high as 67C!! Which temp should I be looking @ ? The one that just says CPU temp, or the other #4 core temps!? I know anything over 70C is dangerous.

My setup is :

CPU : Q6600 standard heatsink and fan I think (sorry I'm a newbie to OC)

Motherboard : Asus P5N-E SLI

RAM 4GB DDR2- 800

Graphics: 2 x 8800GT 512 SLI mode

HD: SATA 500GB

you should be concentrating on the individual cores. 67C is pushing it alittle, you have a Q6600....if its a B3 revision the thermal spec is 62C, if its a G0 revision the thermal spec is 67C. these are temps that you dont want to pass.

In terms of where it just says "CPU: 48C" i believe that would be an average temp, i could be wrong.

And if your wondering why your running alittle high, its cause your on stock cooling. At least i think you cause are thats what you posted....sorta lol

Anyway there you go, and welcome to OCN

EDIT - okay i just did alittle searching and the "CPU temp" is the temp at the IHS. and the other 4 temps are the individual temps of each core.

The CPU temperature is a sensor on the IHS of the processor itself. Core temperatures can be between 5-15C higher than this at any given time...

As for "safe values" the Q6600 G0 is good up to 100C before thermal failure and considering you're already at a 3.00 Ghz overclock it's not unusual to see temps like that.

Tips for lowering that value - for a TRUE - would be...

1. Stop it from sliding by putting a rubber washer over the top of the base, below the mounting clips that screw down. Something about the size of a quarter will do the trick nicely and prevent any wandering.

2. If you see core temps that are 5+ C different from each other it's a pretty good indication that the TRUE may need a lapping job on it's contact surface. Time consuming as hell (i'm doing mine this weekend) but most people have reported good results with shaving several degrees off their temps as well as stabilizing the values reported across all four cores.

3. if you have the headroom in your case, consider adding the IFX-10 backside-cooler to pull the heat out of the backside of the processor as well as the front. I've coupled one up to my TRUE and I noticed the temps (via IR Temperature Gage) on my MOSFETS, CPU and Northbridge all dropped several degrees celsius - presumably because the heat isn't radiating out into the PCB of the motherboard.

However, the IFX-10 ships with a mounting base that is much++ better than the one shipped with the TRUE that also helps prevent some of the same wandering issues as mentioned above. Of course, you have to make it fit...

Thanx for the replies guys.
Just checked and its the G0 revision I have so hopefully I shoudn't have damaged the chip while testing it. I'd love to use COretemp but it just refusese to work on my Vista 64Bit OS (yep even the 64bit version doesn't work!!)
